New York, Sept. Sth, 1881. 

Dear Sir: 

- . In order to raise money for current expenses the 
Board of Directors has decided to issue Debenture Bonds 
running for three years at six per cent., redeemable by the 
Company at any time on siaty days notice. The Directors 
have decided to offer these bonds in the Jirst instance to the 
Stockholders of the Company, who are requested to subscribe 
for them in the proportion of one dollar for every share of 
stock held by each Stockholder. It is important that each 
Stockholder should thus take his share, thereby doing away 
with the necessity of offering the bonds to the public. 

You appear on the books of the Company as a Stockholder 
holding “PY oo shares of stock, accordingly your 
subscription to these Debenture Bonds, on the above basis, 
would amount to Ld oO — dollars.. You are 
earnestly requested to hake that subscription, and, should you 
decide to do 80, to forward a check for the amount, drawn to 
the order of The Edison Hlectric Light Company of Europe 
(Limited), to the undersigned. 

Any further information that may be desired will be 
promptly furnished. 
Respectfully yours, 
Second Vice-President.

Hotel Mengelle, 
75 rue Royale, 75, i) 
December lst 1881. 

My dear Mr. Lowrey- 

Your most kind and friendly note from L’ pool 

reached me in London just before my departure for here, where 

I have been for some time concluding all the arrangements 
incidental to the formation of a company to work our Belgian’ 
Petents. I am glad to say my task has just been finished, 
and T go to London on Sunday next- I have got @ powerful 

group of Antwerp and Brusselé: bankers abd merchants to form 

our’ ¢¢ iy, which was duly registered on the 28rd ult. as 

the" Se t6 Bélge « et Hollandaise @ Blectricité” Capital 

Peanos ‘Sy “000, 000==" in: 20, 000 § sheres craitnary : ‘of °250 for each 

and f008 founders parts, of which we “(the Force and Lumiere 
ar ae 
Coe) det 10,000 shares ordinary. and #0001 or al. piaeans 

PEGEOe which-are entitled to 45 ber goats: of ooh profits left 
after paying 6 per neues on the ordinary ahereey: ae the 
capital has been subscribed firm, and the egnpany now starts 


‘ as the first *baby” or offshoot “of, our mosher ‘Conpeny: 

vo eo ne 

The time has now come to make electricity 

go and produce positive results; in short, to raise it from 
the region of speculative science into that of sound commercial 
enterprise. I need scarcely say that those who cam now. take 
advantage of the furore for Electric Companies and get first 
into the field of practice will have an immense pull over fu- 
ture comerse This is what we are pushing for ani what 1 have 
to som extent achieved in 4 small way to be sure, but this 
is e small country and I am quite satisfied with our beginning. 
During the course of the next week or ten days I hope to bring 
out our English Company with a million sterling capital, and 
if one may be permitted to judge by the excitement which I 

am told by telegraph from London, existed today on the prignt=. 
on line experiments of railway lighting, I think our financial 
success in Great Britain is assured. I have only the telegram 
as yet, but it would appear the trials, which for three days 
past have been going on, and the public inauguration today 
were a marked success. I shall send you the newspaper reports 
and no doubt your people in rondoa will inform you direct as 

I sent invitations to Messrs Fatbri & Johnson to attend 

We had also a very satisfactory result at the 
Society of Arts mee ting on the 23rd in Paes OR: Professor 
Thompson read a paper on the SP OERES of Pactrig energy and 
Secondary batteries, wherein Faures accumulation had a very 
high place and was the only one which entered intg practical 
Competition, having kept the lecture hall well illuminated by 
80 of Edison's B, Lamps fed from 82 cells during the whole eNen- 
ings I send you Copy paper. . 

In the tee field we had another triumph 
on Tuesday last, when the Solicitor-General, with Mr Webster 
QC. and Mr Pollard in Consultation with Messrs. Carpmael, J ohn- 
son, Professor Ayrton, Sir William Thompson and others after an 

exhaustive criticism of all existing patents and inventions 

relating to this matter, declared that Faures Patents were valid 

and tenable; Ast, because ‘the invention itselr: Was ‘new, and 
2nd, because its application was unq ues ti onably hovel. . Their 
official opinion to this effect Will be delivered in writing 
in a day or tWo ‘and I shall send you. Copye 

Ihave carefully and cautiously made enquiries 

in Paris and here regarding the standing of Mr Porges, and T 

am glad to be able to assure you that you could not be in better 

hands. He has means, good friends, and is persqally an hones? 
man, Viola mes vensebansnte: I find he has inaugurated his 

new Bank and in the uddress to his shaveneldara he alludes to 
the Edison contract for purope, but says his Bank will only 

risk 50,000 frs- or $10,000 as their share of the capital, This 
of caurrse means nothing, and is merely put forth as a sort of 
@ssuraunce as to the prudent nature of the transactions the Bank 
means to embark in. No doubt Mr Porges group is sufficiently 
etehe to ie Ge alone and the Bank only enters for form suke. 

I have written to Mr. Enews Shout the origin of his incandescent 
lamps and as to whether there was any publ isetion ma de at the 
time, many years ago, describing the daventice: T have no reply 
from him as yet, bit I am assured there was a. commaieation made 
to the ‘Acaddinie des Sciences ae may be ‘found in the annals 

or proceedings of that body.’ ; r shall ‘ty to ane at the date 
and have @ search I however have not much confidence in his 



As soon as our English Co, shall have been 

formed we mean to tackle the Savoy Theatre with Faures accumu~ 
lator am Edison’s Lamps, and go on to other theatres; but I 

think Mr. Edison will come to give us a lamp of 20 to 30 candle 

power with only the same resistance and length of cgyrbon 

as his B. Lamp. This will be indispensable for_certgin uses 

and places. 

Then again I look to him through your good 
self to produce a 100 candle lamp for street lighting as a 
competitor to Arc lights; and you will see ere very long that 
this must be the solution of the- problem for publie lighting. 

There is no officigl dediapetion of the cor-~ 
poration of London ré the Are being thrown out; but I know, 
Rom reliable sources it ig to come and soon. “And now I have 
given you all the news I can get on such matters. I am sein 
to ask you to write me a ay if in your Reteses for the 
éecieeee of t he garepesn Patents, “you: have included Hollgnd 
(Nether ands) There are no patents there, oe if you have not 

specially mentioned it in your: transfer it becomes free to you- 

as it is ad wold to any one else, to use MM Edism’s processes 

and inventions.’ I ask this, because my step son-in-law, the 

Badon de Van den Bogarde de ter Bongge is a very distinguished 
engineer and has great infouence at tha Court there and being 
interested with me in electricity, would like to have a pe rmi s— 
sion even of a negative kind; . of cairse giving cmsideration 
for it, from Mr. Edison to employ his system there; can you 
help me in this direction? Pray convey my kindest regards to 
Mademe Lowrey, aha ROniag soon to have the pleusure of hearing 
from you, I remain | 
Very sincerely yours, 
Ricarde Seaver. 
P.S. Your friend Mr. Swynyard did not call during my stay in 
nantes bus may have done so since I left; T shall be very 
pleased to see him on my return. TI presume he was at Brighton 
today. Kind regards to Col. Mackay. Please inform 
him of all that goes on which may interest hime

Remarks of President Charles Porg>s, 

It rests with me gentlemen,to say something upon what we have 
already done and the course we intend to follow in the direction 
of the Central Bank of Commerce and Industry. Tt is well at 
once to state bhat we intend to conduct business but not politics. {. 
We have the good fortune to count among our administrators , D 
some political men justly estoemed who have Come to aid our 
business and not to mix with questions which they undestand 
how to treat in another sphere. It is true however, that we are 
all Republicans, 211 partisans of the actual goverment, all 
friends of progress and light. bay: first work Will be to en- 
lighten the world (laughter) that is to, say, to put in practices 
the patents of Mr Rdison for the application of Electricity for 
the production of- Motives powerand light. These patents we 
shall introduce over the whole Ruropean continent except Portugal 
and Sweden. The organization of éompani aa of this kind is very 
complicated on aceount of the considerable divergence which 
exists between the legislation (laws) of France and America. 
The negociations have been laborious but we have at last a 
formula which has given satisfaction to Mn Rdison and to 

Without going into the details of our future operations, 
T ‘would cay tae We intend to form three companies. One will 
bear tho name of the Bdi son Continental company, which will be 
charged to make avai bable the processes of that inventor in all 
the countries for which, we authorized to treate To this effect 
particular or special companies will be formed at Vienna, 
Berlin, Rotie, Nadrid, ina word, in all fh principal cities 

of Europe with participation of our company in the profits.

The sum of a million which constitutes the first issue of shares 
is not very considerable, but you know that small beginnings 
often lead to great results. 

T would not conceal from you that in its essence this 
business iS even very contingent, but if we surround pukesives 
with all possible precautions, and act only after a careful 
examination of the reports presented by our engineers we 
believe that we can attain happy results. The sulogy of Mn Edi~ 
‘son's inventions is superfluous, but never-the-less Other in- 
ventors might discover somet hing better. In putting all the 
chances against, us, but one million could be lost in which our 
bank could @nly los» 5sno0dderr if the Board of Directors accept 
"my proposition. According to approximate calculations there is 
@ groat chance for the 50000frn to produ:ze an annual: resinus of 
about the same sum. : 

The total interest of the Bank in the three companies 
Will not exceed the sum of £75, 000fr.. 

The Second company will be a manufacturing company 
whose works established in the vicinity of Paris, andswill be 
directed by Mr Bachelor one of. the err co-laborers of 
Mr Edison. No rival company will be Placed under the direction 
of so efficient and competant engineer. possessing the most 
consummate practical experience than he, for, he has followed 
from the commencement to the end the studies of Mn Rdison and 
directad during two years at Nw York similar compani oS 
I believe ther sfore, that even should Certain processes of Mr 
Edisons fall into public hands the possibility of Whiak we- 
absolutely contest, our company would still have a marked su- 

Periorty over those which exPloit the application of electricity 

for illumina ion. 

Finally, the third company (this multiplicity of 
companies aay appear strange but there are in New York five 
companies of the same kind as ours and having the same object 
in view} The third company’s object, will be the eStablishnent 
of isolated plants for the pur pose, of lighting large stores, Ms 

railroad depots, printing establishnents, &c. In these estab~ n 

lishnents plants can be put without requiring the sanction 

of the municipal authorities for opening trenches. Thi sj 1 
company would also be the first to movee We have already a 
eonsiderable number of orders from various establi shnents A \ is :

of La Patite Republique Francaise” The Green room of the :

to show you that this is no ordinary business affair, and en 
it presents 2 Serious prospect of profit, Now,as to the course 
We calculate tO pursue in the general management of our Bank 
I may-I believe dispenéa with by saying, that it will be very 
discreet. You know how I managed my own affairs for a long 
time, and how oppoSed I am to peaGtateens 

We have in addition certain chances Of profit which 
are not to be despisod. We have tho good fortune to possess

Banque Franeo Fgyptisnne. 

Gentlemen T will no longer detain fou and.if nobody 
desires to speak T shall adjourn the meeting, convinced that all 
of you carry with +08 the impression that you have just inaug- 

urated 4 business which has serious prospects of succssse 

The meeting adjourned at 415 P. M

. 446, STRAND, W.C., 

By means of Vaure'’s Accumulators Electric energy can ‘be stored und retained to bo re-distributed as 
and when required. 

Sir William Thomson’s oxperiments have demonstrated, beyond doubt, that not more than 10 % of the 
electric energy passing through tho Accumulator is lost, and this loss is cortainly less than tho averago leakage 
of Gas in its transmission through the pipes. 

With Tauro’s Accumulator a steady divided light, of any intensity required, can bo obtained in incandes- 
cont lamps, irrespective of their resistance. At tho samo time, Electric enurgy can be continually produced and 
stored, and thus a very great saving is effected, as by the aid of tho Accumulator, the Steam Engines and the 
Dynamo-Electric machines can run without cessation during the whole 24 hours of the day. 

But where Faure’s invention is of tho greatest valuo, is in its capability of concontrating and transporting 
motive power, and in its uso in tho place of animal and mechanical force, so that at will, and at all times, the 
required amount of power can be had for purposes of traction, and working engines of every kind throughout a 
town, or for ‘ploughing, thrashing, or other agricultural purposes in the country, or for propolling vessels, 
barges, and boats upon the water. In fact, once the motive power being earried about in an independent form, 
it can bo utilised, for land and marine purposes, wherever there is a piece of mechanism to be sct in motion. 

Moreover it will permit of tho nso and application of the immense, and hithorto inofficacious and almost 
wasted, forces of wind and water, for the inexpensive production of Electric energy. 

All these immense forces of nature which, by reason of their uncertainty, or their distance, have either not 
been fully utilised, or have been entirely lost, will, by M. Faure’s invention, become a certain means of producing 
tho. electricity, which can be stored and be drawn’ upori ug jToquired for, any of the above purposes. Consoquehtly 
the storage of Electric energy’ must, of itself, create. economic revolution, and as it can only be accom- 
plished, practically and advantageously, by Faure’s Accumulators the proprictors of these patents must: of necessity 

derive onormpus profits thorefrom. 

As a practical instance of the value of the invention it is sufficiont to state that by its means the PeEeue and 
Ommibuses of London ean by olectricity be Worked at less than half the present expense. 
e Tts application, us a motivo power for- ‘the’ ‘working. of the Metropolitin and Metropolitan District Railways; ~ 
is one of the most important to which it can be adapted. The absence of heat, smoke, and noxious gases will 
conduco materially to the health and comfort of passengers; und the lighting of the stations and carringes will also 

be vastly improved, “and, ‘much more economically effected. 
Sir William Thomson, in his lotter to the “Times” of the 9th of June last, Senviesss himself in the 

following words rogarding Fauro’s Invention “Tho subject is one in which I feel intonacly interested, secing 
in it a realization of the most: ardently and unceasingly felt scientific ‘aspiration of my life.” 
Tho description’ of Accumulator’ now recommended by M. Tauro is 2 battory of rectangular shape, reine 

about 50 Ibs. 
Ono charge of. 4 such batteries wilt suffice” for Sch a sewing machine for 2 week.

The actual cost of re-charging a battery will bo about 24d., but this price will probably: shortly be reduced”

The following are the prices of the batteries, payable cash on delivery :—

London, 16th December 1981. . 

Dear Sir: 

Mr. Edison’s Electric Light. 

As promised yesterday I beg to report to you 
on your leaving for America upon the progress so far made 
with |. : 
ef the various branches of the work which I have had the pleas-— 

ure of conducting for you during the last few weeks. 

First as to the Patents. Under Mr. Preece’s 

advice the preliminary investigation of these was placed in the 
hands of Mr. & Bidwell-- a Barrister whose scientific attain- 
ments peculiarly fit him for the task Which is one of no small 


respcnsibility. Mr. Bidwell has already reported on the claims 

for the lamp, and is now engaged.on those for the other pertions a 
of the Edison system His report on the lamp claims Was plac- 
| ed before Mr. John Henry Johnson, the Patent Agent, and ihe anes 
ter has confirmed the seaniueien that the patent of November | 
10th 1879 is the one on which as to this part of the system we 

must mainly if not exclusively rest. The anusey revealed 

much in the framing of the.patents which we cannot but regret 

wea ARR ide ideale | 

x : ; 

@8 Weakening the position which Mr Edison’ s undoubted discover~ 
ies ought to have given him Mr. John Henry Johnson hopes hov-— 
ever that we may be able by dis¢laimer to strengthen that posi- 
tion, and I assume that we have your authority to taka sik 
steps in this direction as may seem expedient after due consid~ 
eration. We shall agk. under the advice of Mr Webster, Qc. 
wito is the ablest patent lawyer at the English Bar, and I look 
forWerd-- fisak Valuable used eteass in this matter fron the in- 
hue knowledge of the subject possessed by Mr. E. H. Johnson, . 
in whose judgment I have great confidence. We mst make the ‘ 
utmost possible use of his help during his present stay in this 

I araneay hope that the patents which relate 
to other parts of Mr. Edison’s system may supply claims suffi- 
Ciertly clear to protect Seis of its more important details. 

It will be a great disappointXént if we find (as ur. Bidwell 
fears is the case) that there is no patent for the device by which 
Mr. Edism protects his system fran the risk of fires You may 
rely on everything being done that scientific and legal skill 

can'do to ascertain exactly how we stand in this and other points, - 

and to strengthen the claims which prove to be novel and well 
founded by disclaiming such portions of the patents as may expose 
these claims to danger. You may also rely on my using my best 
enheevons to keep the expense of this inquiry and the consequent 
Proceedings Within the most moderate limits possible, but I should 
be misleading you if I reprosented the work as likely very soon 

to be canpleted, or as not likely to involve a Considerable out~ 


Secondly ns to Parligmentury powerse 

At Mr Lowrey’s sudtanse during your absence 
on the Continent we took the needful steps since approved by you 
for an application to Pabliguent mext Session for powers to sup- 
Ply Mr. Edison’s light im cases where to do this involves taking 
up streets ete. The wisdon.not to say necessity-of this step 

Was' evidenced immediately afterwards by the fact that all the 

other electric light companies were app lying for similar povers. 

I cannot say that I am very sanguine that Parliament will give 

us the bill we are about to deposit just as it is drawn, but it 

is clear that the whole subject must be dealt with, and it is 

PN eRe § MOE Pe IES eB at TE ea TRO eK eee: Pee 

Probable that all the bills of the various rival companies will 
be referred to a Select Ganmittee- If this course is taken, it 
would seem essential in your interest that Mr Edison’s system 
should be one of those considered, and that it should be brought 
before Parliament as one fully developed pea ready for immediate 
introdu ction. No better evidence of confidence on this 
pOint can well be given than by an application for the powers in 
question. The expense here again will not be small (few private 
bills if they encounter any opposition sre ever obtained for less 
than 2000 pounds and they often cost very much more) but having 
regard to the magnitude of the interest involved, I believe that 
‘all persons éompatent’ te: fen an opinion would say that the ap- 
Plication is not only prudent but necessary. I. hope to have & 
final revise of the bill ready for you before you leave, and 
shell assume unless you otherwise instruct me that you desire 
all needful steps taken to place before Parliament with the best 
pouetoue chances of success, 

Thirdly as to the proposed Company. 

I need hardly recapitulate here what has been. 

done towards forming a strong organization with ample capital for 

the acquisition of Mr. Edison’s patent rights in this country, 

and working those rights energetically for the common benefit of 
Mr. Edison am the capitalists concerned. When you gave me 
instructions to take preliminary steps in this direction, I felt 
that there was no one in England so likely to ensure @ suce ess 

of such en organization, asd so likely to be personally accepta- 
ble to Mr. Edison as Sir John Lubbock That gentleman is not 
only well liked in Parliament as member for the Waiveraity of Lon- 
don, atd in the City as the head of one of the leading London 
Banks, but he is equally distinguished ip the world of science. 
He is a fellow of the Royal Society and last Summer was President 
of the British Association for the advancement of seienes at its 
Jubilee Anniversary. . 

I thought it for hielas reasons expedient to 
approach him in the first instance, and after my explanation of 
What you had in view, he at once expressed his readiness to tate 
an interest in and devote some of his time to the organization of 
the proposed canpany, though his other engagements may prevent 

his accepting a seat upon its Board At his suggestion I next 

went tQ Mr Bonverie, ea gentlement of the very highest business 

standing and experience, of broad and liberal views, formerly 

Vice President of the Board of Trade, already known to Mr. Edison, 
and who has a very great admiration..for ur Edison’ s genius. 

Mr. Bowverie ‘has entered into the matter with zest, ani I already 
have reason to hope that his name and Sir John Lubbock’s will 
render it:* a comparatively easy task to secure the others we. 
desire in order fe form a canpany ae satisfactory in the standing 
of its shareholders as in the character of the work which it will 

be faviea to carry on. I attach great importance to‘ these 

names for this among other reasons; that the development of 
Mr. Edisa’s system must depend mainly on the rapidity with which 
local companies are formed for lighting the separate towns. 

As tO the merits of the different systems the mass of the canme-. 
nity will for some little time be unable for want of experience 
See judge—. but the character and standing of these gentlemen are 
known to the whole country, end furnish a prima facie reconmenda—

value whe you come to form your local companiese I s8y this

without at all ignoring the enormous and growing reptati on which 

Mr. Edison himself so deservedly hase 

“a 4 

The dupeadent Por the proposed company which 
you take out with you to lay before Mr Edis@ and your coileaguos 
in New York, meets I understand with:your own cordial approval. 

I was wishful as you are aWare, that that agreement had been set- 

tled on your. behalf by. an jentirely independent solicitor, but it 
. i ane Ve r 

has been laid before a separate Gounsel with instructions to con- 
sider it in Mr. Edison’s interest and has been approved by him. 

I can well believe that in some of its details it may seem to fall 
short of the expectations previously formed of what should be at 
once possible in this country, but I may porhaps point out that 
these expectations Were probably formed on an estimate of ro 
Mense importance of the invention rather than any accurate knowi~ 1 

edge of the extent to which that invention could be handed over 

as @ monopoly to enterprising capitalists. | The scheme however 

of the agreement is one which will I believe work perfect justice 
to Mr Edison’s interest, securing to him as it does one half of 
all the prabite which may be earned by the Company, however long 
its continuance efter payment of five per cent. on its ‘notual cap— 

ital, and one half of all surplus after repayment of that capita, 

. in the event of a liquidation or dissolution This share of i 

profits is represented by Be shares fully paid up and which will 

be equal in amount to the capital from time to time paid up on 
thé A shares. 

Mr. Edison and his partners will thus receive 
in respect of the patents immediately after the Sanbeny is formed 
(in addition to the cash payment) 100,000 pounds in fully paid up 
shares, ranking for dividend equally with the A shares after paying 
five per cent. on the latter, and each successive increase in the 
paid up capital of the canpany will give him a corresponding ad~ 
dition to this holding .~ t 

The agreement Cmtains a clause providing 
that the company shall be entitled under these conditions to any 
future patents relating to the light which Mr. Edison may take out. 
This was the provision in the case of the telephone agreement, 
and will I trust commend itself to Mn Edison’ s judgment here also, 
as being the arrangemst most likely to condiice to hig own inter- 
est as well as to that of his fellow share-holders . 

It is a most impossible to place a price which shall be anyt hing : 

like the real value on a new and untried patent. But it would 


seem the best arrangement to entrust such a patent to the hands 

most likely towork it efficiently and where a substantial share 
of the profits Made will go to the patentee. 

The gentlemen to whan the agreement as now 
in your hands has been submitted, and who are ready to aabgeeabe 
5000 pounds apiece iewanie ‘the formation of the Company, proposed 

on the lines defined by that agreement, have been informed that 

though satisfactory to you, it is not to be taken as finally ap- 
proved in its details until I hear from you after your return to 
New York. The future shareholders will all desire that those 
détails should bs acceptable, not only to your partners but es~ 
pecially to Mr. Edison, with whom they look forward if the Matter 
Preceeds to a connection which shail be both close and cordial; : 
but I ought perhaps to beg ¥qu to bear in mind that those details 
have not been hastily arrived at here. They have been dia subject 
of many conferences and mech deliberation, and thoughi:all the in- 

tending shareholders are ready to accept the proposal as it now 

stands I cannot answer for their readiness to adopt any changes. 

Were we in a position to say eee about the patents‘ the case 
would of course be different. All we can at present promise is 
that if the proposed arrangement is carried out the patent shall \ 
be defended by all that skill and money in this country can doe 
t presume you think there is a sufficient probability of the a- 
greement being accepted under your recommendation to justify ay 
laying it provisionally before other gentlemen of position and 
business ability pending your expected letter. I am particularly 
anxious aMong others to see Mn W. H. Smith, the late first Lord of 
the Admiralty, to whom Sir John Lubbock has written, and who is 
expected Baek dn this country on Thursday nexte Perhaps you will 
let me have a line on this point. 

In conclusion I have oly to express to you 
the very great gratification it has been to me to be honored with 
y our sonPidbese iw this business, and to be comnected in however 
a remote a degree with Mr Edison’s great invention ‘I have 
personally a very strong opinion of the expediency of forming a 

Campaby at once under the agreement which you take out with you, 

but whether or no this is carried through I shall. always look 

back with pleasure on the work.of the last few weeks 
I am, my dear Sir, 
Tours very faithfully,

conosiving the idea, viz.: “I have found the true solution of the... 

‘problom of subdividing the Electric Light.” With him the 
provision of the means and methods are always more matters of 
persovering experimentation, and sure ultimately. to be found.

Electrical pressuro (Elootro motive force) is prosorved. 
These comprohond the Boilera, the Engines, and the 
devices for rogulating the strength of the Magnetic 

. Wield of Force, : ‘ 

Fifth—-The confinoment of the energy within designated 

_ limits, #.0., the Znsulation. : 

‘Sizth—The protection of the light, tho’ conductors, and

Seventh—The measuremont of energy at the several points

‘ T havo endeavoured to place the several heads in the order of 

their rolative degrees of importance, without at the same time 

- impairing seriouely the thread of the description. Ihave there- 
for beon compelled to start with the Lamp, rather than with

eminent importance, and without which the sub-division of the

This consists of a high resistance Jilament or thread of carbon 
enclosed in a bulb or globe mado entirely of glass, and from which : 
i the air and gases have boon expellod to the point of a millionth 

i of an atmosphore, commonly expressed as o “high vaouum.” 
r Mr. Epson concoived in the first instance that high resistance 
i ' in combination with small radiating surface in a high vacuum 
' Was & pre-requisite to success in the problem of sub-division; 
; but when his first patents were taken out he was engaged 
i upon a process of preparation of platinum conductors for his 
i incandescent loop, and, finding great encouragement in tho 
i Progress made towards increasing the refractory power of the 
n metal, folt moro or less sanguine of his ability to ‘give to 
F. platinum a quality which would render the high vacuum un- 
, necessary. Towards the close of his uso ‘of platinum however 

Se ee

‘ eae snother offect quite as important as improving the vacuum .

i .. Thus in the treatment of all futuro lamps, whether the’ loop 
: ; was of metal or carbon, this process of occluding the ‘gases i 
iS oy s  during exhaustion was always used for the dual purpose of oo

-‘ In the early offorts to obtain a high vacuum, groat difficulty 

was experienced in maintaining it for any considorablo length 
of time; the authorities on the subject of vacuum were at this 
time loud in -thefr assertions that this desideratum was 
unobtainable. The most ominont so arguing, because of the 

existonco of the platinum-wires in tho glass, Itwas asserted | 

that the difference in the rates of expansion and contraction, 
between platinum and gloss, would inevitably admit air inta 
the bulb, oven if it did not orack the glass; and it was by 
somo maintained that air was admitted through the pores of 
tho glass itself during tho Process of natural expansion and 

- contraction, The first-montioned theory had a good basis, 

since in all oxporiments with inoandoscon$ lighting in vacuo, 
prior to Mr, Eprson’s discoverios, comparatively low resistances 
wero used for the light giving bodios, consequently loro resistanog 
or farge lead wires wore necessary to convey the olectrical 
energy to it, This thick platinum condusting wire ‘would 
naturally effect a sufficient margin of strain and reloase upon 
the glass through which it passed to produce ao “Teak,” or 
break the glass, This difficulty was entirely surmounted by 
_ Mx. Eptson’s adoption of the exceedingly thin load wires ; the 
marginal offect of which was too infinitosimal to Produce a leak, 
Such was Mr. Epraoy’s opinion at the time, although the 
diffoulty of ‘loss of vacuum” still continued. Mr. Eprson 
now sought elsewhere for this leak, not believing in tho theory 
of leak through the pores of glass, This lead to an important 
discovory, viz., that when the bulbs are “sealed off” the 
pumps, in the usual mannor (#0, by melting the glass tube 
“Joining the bulb to: the pump) & microscopic tvse was mado, 

. RO matter how fine the tube was drawn it still had a hole 

in it, in fact retained its tubular form, even though drawn 
to a thread. On discovering this the remedy was. readily 
found in ro-sealing the point loft by the breaking off of the | 
thin thread, a little ball of solid glass was formed at this point, 
and the air pressure now being brought into service forced the 

solid glass into the end of the tube thus closing it up and - 

allowing of tho formation of a solid glass cap or ball, this lamp 
-on trial proved entirely satisfactory, in fact 
sealing finally disposed of tho difficulty’? ‘Me. Ettow claims, 
therefore, to have been the first to toholly seal a vacuum bulb for 
incandescent lighting with glass, and I think investigation will 
sustain the claim. . 
After thus providing against a return of tho air i he globo, 
- Mr, Edison found that his vacuums rapidly deteriorated on uso, 
seeking for tho cause of this led to tho discovery that when the 
conductor in the vacuum awvas subjected to the action of the 

.,®lectric current, the gases contained :within its cells were 

expanded and forced out into the vacuum, thereby filling the 
globe with their prosenco, and matorially reducing the value of 

-r, the vacuum; upon meking this discovery, he adopted the plan

The function of this portion of the lamp is a dual one, viz. :-— 
tho offect en economical distribution f energy, and to effect an 
: economicaf conversion of energy light. 

The distribution of electrical enorgy throughout a circuit is 
in direct proportion to the rosistanco of that cirouit that is to 
say, every unit of tho conductor resistance will have active upon 
it, an (degroo of energy. Thus, if a conductor is made up 
of two parts, ono of which consists of a mile of copper wire half 
an inch in diametor, having, say, one ohm rosistance, and the 
other of inch of a poorer conducting material, say, carbon, 
weaihes ft é having 2 ono ohm resistance, there will be precisely that 
i an te s : unaaiaae : amount of energy in tho one half of the cirouit composed of the 

by | one inch of carbon, as in the other half composed of tho ono 
{ mile of copper rod. 

' ‘ §upposing, thoroforo, a material amount of energy to bo 
passing in the circuit, we will have half of it concontrated upon 
the small carbon pencil, whilo the other half is spread over the 
enormous copper wire. Tho result is obvious. Tho great supor- : 4 
ficial surface of the coppor will pormit of the heat being radiated : 
in such infinitesimal degroes per unit of its surface as to be : 
wholly undetectable, while tho small area of tho carbon will bo : ' 
so wholly unequal to the task of throwing off its heat, as to 
compel its translation into another form of energy, viz., that of 

If we desire to conoentrate a greater portion than fifty per 
cent. of the enorgy on the carbon, wo must tnerease tte resistance, 
: and as it is important to have as small. an amount of copper in 
ro dus our mile of conductor_as possible, for commercial reasons, we 
: must at the same time ‘reduce its size, thus inereasing its resistance. : : 
\ This compels us to ‘abnormally increase the resistance of our ; 
\ carbon in order to obtain a ratio of carbon resistanco many ‘ 
times greater than that of the copper. 

Now, if wo include in the copper conductor that portion of the 
circuit which is incorporated in the dynumo, it will be seen that 
wo must keep #¢ resistance vory low, or we shall havo in our 
“mile” of copper so great a resistance as to approximate that 
of our “inch” of carbon. ' 

: Now, if we will consider the “mile” of copper to represent 
i fas the dynamo and tho conductors, and the “inch ” of carbon to re- 
prosent the lamp, wo will observo, that to have the largost por-. 
contage of the total energy created delivered at the lamp, where 
_ it can be translated into a marketable product, t.., light, we 
must have the greatest possible disproportion of lamp resistanco 
fo dynamo and conductor resistance. ‘ 
The problom of economical energy distribution is therefore to . 
Ge He Big, waite highest possible resistance permitted. by other roquiro- j 
ments of the lamp, and the lowgst possible resistance in tho dynamo * ‘ can 
| Peascas and conductors, permitted tf di eaten of thodynamo, ~ ‘ 

and the monxy value of coppor. The function of resistance is i 

therefore simply to’ permit of an cconomical transportation of * 1 
. the energy from the dynamos, which constitute the common 

source of onergy supply, td the lamps, which are necossarily 

spread over a wide area and located at innumerable points, 

more or less distant from the supply contro. If the lamps. and 

‘the dynamos were all located in one place, resistance in a lamp 

“would cease to be a factor. Thus resistance one became a factor 
’ when the quostion of distribution arose.

(otha | 

Sonfounded with’ that of the economical conversion of energy 
wath light, the one has to do solely with the economical distribu- 

tion’ of the enorgy, the other simply with its economical utiliza- 
tion after distribution. The ono is determined, as we have 
soon, by the ratio of lamp to generator and conductor resistance. 
The other solely by the oxtent of the radiating surface of tho 
carbon, that is to say, whatevor may bo the amount of energy 
active in.the lamp, it will produco exactly the samo amount of 
light on o given radiating surfaco, whether tho resistance bo 
one ohm or a thousand. 

Tho high resistance desired for the purpdse of energy con-' 
centration within the lamp, is obtained by the uso of a very ., 
slender thread of carbon, this slender throad of carbon aaa PPevidke, 
second but wholly distinct desideratum, viz.: a vory eniall body 
upon which tho energy is to be translated from hoat into light. 

It is of course a well known law that a given amount of heat 
acting upon two bodies, one a largo and one a small ono, will 
produce resulta in disor proportion to the vaio of their size, CZ 
If, thon, wo desire the-heat produced by the energy in the carbon 
to bo transformed into light, wo must have a body so proportioned 
to the amount of heat at our disposal as to permit of that degree 
of temperature boing’ reached which yiolds light, and is 
commonly known as incandesconce. The problem here then is 
to have tho smallest possible surfaco in order to obtain the 
required degroe of: light with tho expenditure of tho least 
possible energy. ine 

The factors determining this minimum of surface are: first, 
high rofractory power; second, isolation of the heated body from 
all heat-conducting mediums. 

Tho first is found in a remarkablo degree in the material 
solouted, viz.: carbon made from vogotablo fibro, and is largely 
augmented by the peculiar treatment to which it is subsequently 
subjected. ‘Tho second is obtained by placing it in o receiver 
from which the air has been exhausted, and by expolling all 

‘ the gases from the cells of the carbon’ itself during the process 
of vacuum exhaustion, thus shutting ¢hem, as well as the air: 

out of the globe and leaving the carbon in an atmosphere of tory 

ee as to preclude the radiation of any _/1 
se material degree of heat froin it to the walls of the globe. 


A third factor limiting the minimizing of surface area is that 
of durability. Ifthe body is excessively small it will not long 

stand tho wasting effoot of the high tamporature,.do erefore af ¥ 

a limit in this respect is had.. This limit is determined by the 
cost of replacing the lamp when it has failed, and by the value 
" of the energy utilized by-it-in effecting light, to say, the 
“" eoonomicat life of a lomp isthe moan between itd<cost-and the 
“2 ~oalug’ of the ‘electrical andtey ‘ucodia, it -in' a given number- 
of houra, It ia more economical ‘to ‘renew a lamp costing a 
shilling at the ond of 1,000 hours, than to expend even a very 
small percentage more of energy on a slightly inorensed body 
area during each of those 1,000 houra,(and thus make it last 
2,000 hours. J Tho extra expenditure of energy per hour would 
pa, cost many times the shilling—tho cost of lamp renewal. 
Thus the extent of the radiating surface is determinable by 
_ the abovo factors, and the determined surface becomes the gole 
- factor in determining the amount of energy requisite to produce 
a given amount of light, . 
The shapo or form of that’ surfaco area has nothing whatevor . 
to do withthe question. _ It may bo a sheot, a sphere, a stick or 
a long slender thread, just as lo: as the surface remains the same, 
the amount of energy used {0 giva a givon amount of light will 
be constant.: ' joka ol ; 
Therefore resistance is no factor in the economical translation . 
_ of oloctrical energy into light, for it is apparent that if the 
carbon was in the form of a sheet, sphere, or short atick, its 
A ete siaiy would bo practically; nil- while, if elongated into a 
= slender throad, it would be very groat.. . 
 Reatstanos and radiating surface axo therefore absolutely distinot 
factors in the problem of. olectrio ‘lighting. Without thé 
possession of tho first, the lamp is porfect in all respects. Tho 
combination of the two has but one object, viz :—the utisation of the ; 
lamp at a distance from the soures of energy supply. ; 

Tho argument, therefore, that Mr. Epison’s olaim’ for high 
rosistance in combination with a slender. filament is anticipated 
by.the recorded efforts of othors to obtain thin carbong, in order 
to obtain an economical conversion of ‘onergy into light, has no

The shapo or form of that ce area has’ nig’ iqhateves 
to do with the question. . “Tt may be & sheot, o sphere, a stick or 
a long slender thread, just ‘as Jong | us the surface remains the same, 
the amount of energy used to Coy @ given amount of light will 
bo constant. 

Thorofore resistance is no fee in the baccioniisal translation . 
of olectrical enorgy into light, for it is apparent that if the 
carbon was in tho form of a sheet, sphere, or short stick, its 
resistance would be practically; nil while, if olongated into o 
slendor thread, it would bo vory great. 

Resistance and radiating surface axe therefore absolutely distint 
factors in the problem of electric lighting. Without the 
possossion of the first, the lamp is perfect in all respects, The 
combination of the two has but one object, viz :—the utilisation of the 
lamp at a distance from the source of energy supply. . 

The argument, therofore, that Mr. Eprson’s claim for high | 
rosistanco in combination with a slender filament is anticipated 
by. tho recorded efforts of others to obtain thin carbons, in order 
to obtain an economical conversion of energy into light, has no 

for thin carbons they wore necessarily searching for thin carbons 
of high resistance; on the contrary, all the evidence points in the 
opposite direction, viz., thin carbons and low resistance; Imain- . 
tain, thorofore, that Mr. Edison's claim for a jilament of carbon “4 
of high resistance is good. , 

It is a claim for a means of subdividing and distributing 
electrical unergy for the purposo of producing light, and not ° F ! 
simply for an electrio lamp yer #0. 

That A had experimentally produced one part of the com- 
bination, and B suggested that the other was a dosirable thing i 
in tho problem of electric lighting, is, to my mind, no sufficient 
estopage of O's claim to invontion, based on tho practical com- 
bination of the two, especially in view of the fact that A says 
,ho-had his part for twenty yoars, and yet he nor others could 
“not combine it with high resistance, and thus anticipate, Mr. 

Bidison i in solving ‘the Problom of forty. years. 

A fow words on this subjoct will explain Mr. Eprson’s 
thoory as to the production of o superior carbon. It is 
that a natural fibro should bo choson, and not ono manu- 
factured by man. In tho natural fibre the integral con- 
struction will be perfect, while in the manufactured fibre, est 
it cannot but be heterogencous. For example, take a piece 
of bamboo, the fibres will be found to lie in perfectly 
straight lines, and to be composed of an infinite numbor .of 
infinitosimal cella, tho walls of which are thick and strong, thus 
rondering the body exceedingly homogenous. If the filament of 
these fibres to be carbonised consists of, any six individual fibres, 
and the process of cutting the wood be mathematically accurate, i 
so as to onsure siz fibres, no more or less, throughout every unit i 
of its length, it must follow that when carbonized, the carbon | 
will present throughout its longth the same uniform character. H 
This is evidenced by the fact that when a bamboo carbon is ah aes | 

ee ee ee 

enorgized by the ourrent, sufficiont only to bring it to a degree 

of hont showing a fair red, tho shade of that red will bo found 

to be absolutely even, thus proving that the resistance, tho 

refractory power, ‘and the oxtent of its ‘radiating ‘surface’ is : 

absolutely uniform. Truo, ono carbon may differ from another 

in all these several respoots, but it will be due to the prime 

density of the matorial, tho accuracy of the cutting machine, . ‘ 

the perfection of the carbonizing, or the care and comploteness: 

with which the gases aro forced out of their cells, In other H 

words, given a uniform quolity of material perfection in a 

manufacture will ensure a uniform result. / i 
Now, take a carbon, made of a piece of paper The paper is a 

- ‘gonously thrown together and pasted in their accidental position” eo 
‘by a non-carbonizable material. The result is easily foretold. In ; : 
sthe process of carbonizing the paste is decomposed, the irregularly i 
i,locked, short, and twisted threads only remaining. Examination : ey

-1 «the same electrical energization prescribed for the bamboo. 
: uThe “red” will now be found to be of a chequered character— 
. "fe, red only in spots, white in others, and black in others. 
“ * That is to say, the carbon ‘of variable donsity, resistance ond 
.wrefractory power, and of varying superficial area. The cross 
section, having the least material (é.., where-the prongs

_ upon those weak spots, and building them up to a uniform density 
and area with the other portions, pnhis i is done by scaling them 
in a vessel containing ee: Gad-ar gasos, and electrically 

Aenergizing them. The‘theory being that at the points of highest 
tempera‘ ye he weak spots) tise will be deposited tho 

atest quantity of carbon.. 

In practice Mr. Epraon found long ago (in 1879)—and others 

-since—that this was so only to a very limited extent. That while 
the weak spots were boing built up, say at a rate of 5, the 

_. +-stronger parts were also receiving an addition at the rate of say 

8 or 4, and that by reason of the fact that “a stern chase is a 

:@ - long chase,” ere the weak had overtaken the strong the whole 

! had become of such bulkyproportions ag to prove valueless, on 

i , account of its diminished-resistance and inoreased surface. . 

This is the oxplanation of the fact, that Eprsow alone gets 

iy uniformity and high resistance, His-modus operandi, therefore in 

; this detail is of the first importanos, and should be carefully 

borne in mind in reference to his patents, 

There is yet another important factor m the construction of” 
the Lamp, which involves the question of economy of energy, 
economy of construction, and the life of the carbon, viz.:— 
the perfection of the contacts between the lead wires and the 
ends of the carbon loop. It is now'well known that imperfect 
contact offers resistance, and resistance in this case means hoat, 
Carbon being o semi- (#.¢., poor) conductor, it is apparent that 
there ‘must be\a difficulty in effecting a good contact.with its 
surface. This difficulty becomes an slement of considerable 
importance; where the surface dealt’ with is so exceedingly 
small, aa would be the ond of the filament of carbon if left of 
the same dimensions as the body. To obviate this difficulty, 
as far as practicable in this respect, the ends are enlarged, and 
i small clamps or- cups of platinum or copper which have beon 
ae . attached to the lead wires are shapod ao as to cover as much of 
5 «the surfaco of this enlarged end as practicable. If a platinum: 
2 ‘ clamp i is usod, it is usually'made to hold the carbon firmly :by 
$ . + small screws passing from one jaw of the clamp to the other, as 
(a! inavico.. This method has, Yowever, two objections: "This screw,

‘go economical a method as comparod with any other that for 
this reason alono, not to speak of the graver ones of imporfeot 
contact, &o., it is very impurtant to hold it. The patent covering . 
this method should be critically examined, as I am informed 
an effort is boing made to invalidate it, at present other makers 
adopt tho cruder, and moro expensive methods. Thero romains 
Dut one othor feature of the Lamp to describ, viz., the means — 
provided for obtaining a porfect sealing at the point where the 
lead wires pass through the glass. ‘This is effected by @ 
flattening of the mass ‘of the tubo through which they pass, 
into a solid bar, thus, fusing the wires, and the glass together, 
and providing o sufficient body of glass, to provent the slight 
expansion of the wires from oracking it. 

The terminals to which the lead wires are joined, to facilitate 
the connection with the main wires of tho system, will more 
properly recoive attention in the description of the socket and ; ; 
other fixtures. ‘ t { 

The method of carbonizing the fibre may properly be con- : 
sidorod in any description of the Lamp, although I do not know Ro ack 
that Mx. Episox hos constituted the process a part of hid"” at rr 
patentable system. The process consists of placing each fibre in ee ' 
ite own mould, and then placing a number, say 20 or 80, of theso ; 

individual moulds in a larger recoptacle. This is thon sealed, so : SH a 
as to exclude the air, and being placed in a furnace, the whole : 
is brought to a very high temperature, closely bordering on the yr 

melting point. The vossel is thon removed, and after being fp 
allowed to gradually cool, ia opened, and the small moulds, Ut 

the shapo desired for tho Lamp, and to bo perfectly uniform in 
every respect. This uniformity of shape, degreo of carbonization 
and perfect freedom from oxidization, is obtainod by means “ 
moro or less novel and difficult of attainment. Mr. Epison may 
linve ‘described some of thom in his patents—this will appear on 

Those remarks will apply also to the means employed to. 
obtain a thoroughly good vacuum pump. Thore are many 
difficulties in tho way of obtaining a good. vacuum in an 
economical manner. Mr. Epison has solved those, and his. 
factory is equipped with 600 vacuum pumps of his own design : 


* and arrangomont, all more or less novel, and giving to the pump 

a quick and efficiont vacuum-producing capacity. These and “ 
other details connected. with tho manufacture of the Lamp I will 

not now describe minutely, but will of course do ao if reference 

is. made to them in the patents under examination. 

' + ‘With this qualification as to aroturn to the Lamp, I will now 
. pass to the second item of the first head viz., the motor.

(ROOMS 10 & 41) 

New York, November gth, 1881, 

We have for two years past made a specialty of dealing in, and buying and selling on commission, 

‘the stocks of the various companies organized under Mr. Edison's patents for electric lighting. We 
have no official connection with the Company, and our views are governed by entirely unprejudiced in- 
vestigation of the Edison system of lighting as compared with gas and other electric lighting systems. 

Under the Edison patent three Companies are now organized— 

Ist, THe Epison Exectric Licur Company. 
2d. THe Epison Evecrric In.uaiatinc Company or New York, 
3d. Tue Eptson Evectric Licht Company or Europe (Limited). 

ts. THe Epison Execrric Licur Company is the original Company, with a capital of 
$480,000—4,800 shares of S100 each. The capital was originally $300,000, but was increased to 
$480,000 by an assessment on the stockholders of $60 per share for each share of their holding, which 
money was required to meet the expenses of the first experiments made by Mr,,Edison at Menlo Park. 
The payment of this assessment was entirely optional with the stockholders, «ind was freely met by all, 
each one receiving in return for the $60 paid in 6-roths of a share of stock, or in other words stock at 
par. At the time of its issue the stock on the basis of $480,000, sold in. the market and is still selling at 
$1,000 per share, so that each stockholder received for his $60 what to-day is worth $600. 

We are very frequently asked: “Is not $1,000 per share a very high price for a stock that has as 
yet paid no dividends?” We invariably answer, no, and give as our reasons, the following: 

Mr. Edison's system of lighting is the only one which, in our judgment, has thus far shown any 
ability to successfully compete with gas on ‘a large scale, as evidenced by the work being done by the 
Epison Execrric InLuminatiNG Company oF New York, which will more fully appear under that 
head. Now what does successful competition with gas mean? It means that the money invested in gas 
alone in the United States is $400,000,000 ; that the gas companies pay an average dividend on the 
above of ro per cent. or $40,000,000 ; that should the Edison Company only secure one-quarter of the 
$400,000,000, or $100,000,000, upon which it could pay 10 per cent., viz. : $10,000,000, said $10,000,000 
would be divided between 4,800 shares, giving in round numbers a dividend of $2,000 to the share, It 
is easily seen what the value of shares that will pay $2,000 per annum is likely to be. We have only 
taken the field for the Edison light at one-quarter of gas, but when we say that the natural increase in 
gas lighting per annum is about $9,000,000, and that the Electric light can be introduced in many places 
where gas would be out of the question, it will be readily seen that the prospects are far greater. We 
have also been frequently asked ; “Why does the Edison Company not light up,” and have answered : 
“The Company's first principle being competition with gas, and competition with gas being not the 
lighting up of one or two isolated places, where no competition could be shown, it has been decided that 
no attempt at isolation should be made in the City of New York,” but for the purpose of this competition 
a Company was formed, which is: : 

. _ 2d, Tue Epison Evecrric Innuminatinc ‘Company or NEW York, capital $1,000,000, which 
Was organized for the purpose of lighting the City of New York, by Mr. Edison's system. ‘The holders: 
of the stock of the Epison Evecrric Licur Company were entitled to subscribe to the stock of the 
{luminating Company at par, and did so subscribe, instalments of 60 per cent, having already been paid 
in, ‘The subscribers to the first million having the right to subscribe at par to the next issue of stock 

* required for additional districts to be lighted, and. the subscribers to the last issue always having the 
tight to subscribe at par for all additional issues, up to $10,000,000, required for the City of New York. 
Tue Epison Exvectrric Licur Company receives from the above subscriptions 10 per cent. in cash and 
25 per cent, in stock. 

The Illuminating Company received from the City of New York the right to lay tubes under- 
ground, and this is-now being done in the first district which extends from South Street, through Peck 
Slip and Spruce Street to Nassau, down Nassau to Wall, through Wall (east) to South, and embraces the 
territory bounded by these streets. ‘The majority of gas consumers in the district have contracted with 
the Illuminating Company for the light, one consumer alone requiring 5,400 lamps in his building, 
Among the streets already tubed are Peck. Slip, Spruce Street, William to Ann, Cliff Street, Pine Street 
we, and others. Over 1,300 buildings have been wired for the light and several consumers, who had not 
contracted with the Company, on seeing the rapid advance being made, have now sent in their appli- 
cations for the light. . 

. This is only one source of profit to the Enison Exvectric Licut Company, another being the 
sale of generators (dynamo-machines), lamps and all paraphernalia required for the complete develop- 
ment of the system. Companies are already forming, and individual applications are greater than the 
large works established by Mr, Edison are able to fill, for while the Company has objected to do any 
business on a small scale in the City of New York or other gas districts, yet it is selling its machines for 
isolated purposes as fast as they can be turned out. 

3d Tue Epison Evectric Licut Company or Europe (Limited), capital $2,000,000, controls 
the Edison patents for continental Europe. ~ 

In Paris Mr. Edison was awarded the highest diploma of honor for his lighting system, and ‘ob- 
tained besides five gold medals. Several large syndicates have been formed in France for the purpose 
of lighting cities and for manufacturing generators, tubes and lamps. , 

We believe that the future of all of the above companies is very great, and will cheerfully furnish - 
any information within our reach to our friends and the public.

1881. Exhibitions - Paris Electrical Exhibition (D-81-035) 

This folder contains correspondence, reports, and other documents relating to 
the Edison exhibit at the Paris Electrical Exhibition of 1881. Much of the 
correspondence is by Edison's associates, Joshua F. Bailey, Charles Batchelor, and 
Otto A. Moses. Some letters discuss Edison's competitors, particularly Hiram S. 
Maxim. Other material deals with the promotion of the Edison electric light 
system in Europe. Included also are lists of the equipment used in the exhibition, 
floor plans of the exhibit space, and a copy of the report by Theodore du Moncel on 
the Edison light. Related material can be found in D-81-027 (Electric Light - 
Edison yore Light Company of Europe) and D-81-032 (Electric Light - Foreign - 

Approximately 80 percent of the documents have been filmed. The following 
categories of documents have not been filmed: routine shipping lists; duplicate 
copies of selected documents.

8th Sept, 1881 
My Dear Batchelor 

+ had to go to Michigan to get my wife five days berore your big 
machine was ready for shipment and did not return until the machine was 
shipped. I told Francis to write you a full description as to the 1: ~~ 
x °° we we connect the field magnet, but it appears he wrote you oa des- 
cription of the whole machine, For fear that he might not have put every~ 
thing in I will give you a description myself. 

I must tell you that when you left the first experiment with the big 
machine brought out the fact that it was a problem of great difficulty 
to take off from 600 to 800 lights from a commutator with threo large br 
buushes on each side when the brushes were put on new and at a proper angle 
and the ends ground so that all of them would touch the commutator and 
when six hundred light were put, a few minutes after, the sparking 
acting bad and increased so that at the end of about half an hour we were 
always compelled to stop the machine. Sometimes the heat due to the 
sparking would be so great as to melt the solder and the brushes would 
come to pieces. The following phenomina occured which explained why the 
sparking increased so: The sparks melted the ends of the copper and a 
film of copper got onto each end and conmected to its neighbor so that 
at the expiration of half an hour the crust at each end was practically 
aolid, It had no elasticity and the commutator would also get badly burnt. 
I say I was in a bad hole as it lodked as if it were impossible to take 
off cuch a tremendous current. I then determined to try to investigate 
the subject thoroughly. I took one of the South American machines having 
only a apindle in the bearings and a complete commutator with brushes. 

On the spindle was a pulley which was run by an electric motor so that I 
could vary the speed. I found that with the aommutator standing still 
with new brushes upon which I put very hard pressure and with the commu- 
tator highly polished that there was 1/1000 of an ohm resistance between 
the brushes and the commutator, or half of 1/1000 of an ohm per brush.upon 
Upon rotating the shaft at different speeds I found that the resistance 
increased in proportion to the speed whether I started with a light pres- 
sure or a heavy pressure, viz. that the resistance wasgreater when the 
brushes were on flat than when they were end on. This is of course easy 
to understand because when they were on flat but a small portion of the 
brush is in contact. That is to say the total area of brush contact is 
small,while when they are end on the total area of contact is many times 
greater. Resides: when end on each wire gets current direct from the com-= 
vutor, while of on flat the current is taken off through each layer of 
wires one with tho other. But notwithstanding all experiments the resis- 
tanoe with the most terrible pressure was considerable. I think the 
lowest resistance we could get was 6/1000 of an ohm Now 5/1000 of 

an ohm is not much resistance with a small dynamo with only sixty. 

That is to say it is a small factor of the total resistance but when you 
come to a big machine. it becomes a very important factor, There seems 


“o Charles Batchelor 8th of Sept., 1881 

to be a physical phenomena between moving surfaces composed of the same 
metal and no amount of pressure or change of form will prevent it. It is 
fixed and definite and the I came to the conclusion that it would 
be impossible to take off such a tremendous current as we require for the 
big machine by means of copper brushes, as copper without the use 
of an impracticably large commutator, I then thought I would try the effect 
of moré-current, I amalgamted the surface of the commutator and the brushes 
Presto!' There came a change! The thing had no resis- 
tance noticeable whether moving or standing still. Upon the next occasion 
that the big machine was ready to start I amalgamted the commutators and 
brushes and when 600 lights were put on no sparking could be seen standing 
a few feet from the machine. Only by looking down between the commutator 
and the brushes could any sparks be detected and these sparks were blue, 
and were due to the effect of the machinery while the sparkes of copper 
woud have been yellow and I then kmew that the problem was 
solved. We ran the vachine for about one hour and a half a few days after- 
werds we started on a a six hours test with 649 lamps'on. The commutators 
gave no trouble whatever up to the fourth hour, when the mercury got worn 
off in phaces and a spark was apparant, but even up to the end of the test 
the sparks were not great. I afterwards experimented and found that the 
following was the best way of renewing the mercury. I took the brushes and 
dipped them for about six seconds in a solution consisting of about fifty 
parts nitrate acid and about fifty parts of water, dipping about 2% inches 
of the brushes in the solution. I then put a lot of mercury in a flat 
dish $perhaps it would be better to use a deep dish) dipped the brushes 
in the mercury for about five seconds then dipped them again in the nitrate 
acid solution for another five seconds, then put them under a running stream 
of water at such an angle that all the acid would be washed out, working 
the ends of the brushes so that the mercury would freely fhow all over them 
but being careful not to got them out of position. I then took hold of 
the brubh with both hands, held it over the mercury dish, and gave it eight 
or ten sharp jerks like the cracking of a whip so as to dislddge the mer~ 
cury. I then lay them on blotting paper for a few minutes to get rid of 
the water turning them over from time to time. You will notice that the 
mercury becomes very black and that the copper when first dipped and then 
taken out looks very dirty and black much gets over it. This is nothing 
but oxide of mercury and when steeped in the acid bath the second time is 
immediately clean. After the brushes are amalgamated several hours 
they get dull, dry, and the mercury becomes oxidized, therefore the brushes 
should be amalgamted only fifteen or twenty minutes before they are put 
into the machine and they should be reamalgamated each time you make a 
fresh run with the machine. We also amalgamite the commutator. Befor 
I left we had not burned off the commutator which had a great many bad 
places in it duo to its use before amalgamation. I told Dean to turn the 
commutator off before shipping machine to you. I amalgamate the commuta~ 
tors in the following manner. Disolve mercury in nitrate acid until the 
acid will soak up no more mercury. Then get a stick and rap around it a 
linen rag so as to form a kind of sugar tit which should be quite hard 
Keep this tit in the sohution and then daub it several times on a second

rag so as to rid it of any surplus solution as it only requires to be 
moist. Start the engine slowly, get your commutator clean, then take the 
bag arranged-inhtbhe form of a tit and hold it gently on one spot on the 
commutator during about ten or fifteen turns of the machine. The take it 
off and hold a perfectly clean rag on the same sopt so as to polich it. 
The object of this is to get the acid off as quickly as possible as the 
solution is a acid solution and it is essential that no acid should get 
down to the mica between the bars; therefore it requires that great care 
should be taken that the tit should only have a minumum dampness. By per- 
forming successive operations as above you will soon get the commutator 
fully amalgamated and very shiney. Then you better have a superficial 
amalgamation the brushes may be put on and the machine is ready to 
start. The brushes should be so set that on one side the ends of the brushes 
are exactly in the centre of the insulation between the blocks and the 
brushes on the other side should be exactly in the centre of the block so 
that there will be the same number of blocks on the one side as on the 
other from to brushes and these blocks should be exactly on 
the neutral point which you can ascertain by following up the blocks, then 
the wire up to the bar aver the space between the field magnets. Great 
care should be taken in setting these brushes so that they shall be truly 
end on. If is quite difficult to get them so,as sometimes the lower part 
of the brushe will bear while the upper wires although they may look as 

as if they touch while they really do not so that one side of the brush 
will be right and other not; that is to say not at right angles to the 
commutator, Care should therefore be taken before starting the machine 
to get all the ends as fer as possible to bear truly on the commutator block. 

I do not kmow whether Dean sent you the brushes that I used. I found 
all briashes are liable to spread out at the edges that is to say that some 
of the wires at the edge would get spread out. 1 therefore took a copper 
wire and would it around the brush about an inch or an ich and a half, if 
I remember right, from the edge of the holder so as to keep them together 
and to prevent this load of wire from gradually working dowm towards the 
commutator where it might cause trouble, I connected it to another wire 
the end of which I fastened round the screw which holds the brush:in the 

I will now explain to you how to keep up the supply of mercury on the 
commutator. This is important and requires a little judgement. (After 
running a few moments the commntator will look a little dull, therefore 
to prevent this a clean dry rag should be held on the commutator and worked 
back and forth so as to keep it polished. ) 

To replenish mercury on the commutator take a couple of thicknesses 
of extremely fine woven cloth, then pour in some mercury about the size of 
a pea right in the centre of the cloth. Gather the cloth up like a sugar 
tit by twisting it. Then while the machine is running and the lamps are 
on yau can as occasion may require, hold this sugar tit so the speak, with 
the globule of mercury in it on theecommutator and by pressing’ gently the 
mercury will "spray out" through the cloth onto the commutator,. You can 
see by the shine on the commutator the proper degree of pressure necessary, 
While holding it on the dry cloth should be held in advance of the tit 
and worked backwards and forwards so as to spread the meroury. . In this way 

you can reamalgamate the whole surface of the commutator very nicely. 



To Charles Batchelor Sept. 8, 1881 

About evory five or six minutes the dry cloth should be held on the com- 
mutator so as to polish it and about every twenty or thirty minutes a slight 
amount of fresh mercury should be put on the commutator. You will notice 
when you are running with lights on a little line of sparks on different 
patts of the commutator especially after putting fresh mercury on. When 
these are seen the dry cloth should be held on and it will remove them. 

It is nothing more than a little film of mercury on the surface of the 
wires betweon the bars. Some times when you are putting on mercury by 
means of the tit you may press too hard and too much mercury get out. 

In this case little snappy arcs will form. Although this does no harm 

it is best to put it on very gently. The great thing is to keep plenty of 
mercury on the commutator and keep it very bright. You will find after — 
putting on metalic mercury that a great deal of it is sprayed over on the 
brush holders by centrifugal forces occassioned by the movement of the 
armature but this does not matter. After you are through with the nights 
run the commutator should be wiped very dry ond although I have not tried 
it my impression is that the brushes should be taken out and the ends put 
in water as if the commutator is allowed to stand for a length of time 
with any considerabe amount of mercury on it it gets very had as the mercury 
oxideses to a white solid. I found that when + had eight hundred lights 
on with two brushes on each side they would cerry it with great facility 
therefore it is possible to lift a brush off if you ever have occasion to 
do so to fix anything without any danger and it would be een possible 
(you could?) accurately mark the brushes as to their positdon on the brush 
holder, their angle and other things to reamalgamate a break or take it 
out and fix it and put it back while the machine is running, but of course 
this could not be done without some mark. I should advise you to try this 
while the machine is standing still to seo if the thing can be done with 

The bats are wouhd with four thickmesses of parchmont paper each layer 
being fapanned. We found on testing that a half inch spark from the big 
Ritche with a condenser on it would not penetrate this in- 
sulation, but not with standing this insulation and 1/12 inch air space 
bebweon each bar a spark occurred between two bars when wa have 940 lights 
on nuy er 8ould not get it to spark when we had 753 lights on, so you see 
this tendency to spark is a very extradpdinary one and I am sure it is 
just a new (shenanagin) and therefore you should keep it to yourself, Is 
depends entirely on the amount of current passing. 

Now I advise that you do not run regularly with more then 500 or 600 
lights and as you:say a great many half lights can be used this will be 
quite sufficient. For instance you may use 250 full lights and 700 half 
lights. This will be equal to 600 full lights. Then you will be perfectly 
safe. When you make the economical test put on 780 full lights. The 
manhine for this test will be perfectly safe with such a number, But you 
must look out that there are no crosses in your chandeliers or conductors 
as a cross would be equal to 200 or 300 extra lights and this added to the 
600 you ordinarely burn would surely bring out the above referred to phe- 
nominae This sparking which occurs between the bars does no harm so long. 
as the arc does not stick. Every time that it has occurred so far the arc 



To Charles Batchelor Sept. 8, 1881 

which was formed has been broken by the attraction of the lines of fonce 

at the neutral point and only a few scintillations have been throvm out 

at the ends of the machine but once the arc was not destroyed by the attrac- 
tion of the lines of force it got large and a low resistance short circuit 
of the machine occurred and yanked the bars round in a lovely manner and 
bent them + of an inch out of the true. These arcs which occurred when we 
had 850 lights on were immediately destroyed in the manner set forth and we 
continued to run,even after we had seen these arces, for half an hour with- 
out that occurring again the probably was covered up by the Japan 
running into the 

the arcs are of such a nature that one would think that they are due to 

the wire bands from the armature striking the field magnets. We soon found 
that this was not so. What led to the discovery of the importance of this 
phenomena was this. I had concluded that the spotting was due to conduction 
across the mica between the bats which was the way you remember we first 
conducted them. Then I concluded that air being the 

of the bar from which copper was teken and deposited on the other bar the 
copper being taken over an air space fully /64 of an inch. I then mew 
I had to deal with a static current. I then went to work and had the bars 

Japaned, finding by investigating with a coil that Japan retards 
static sparks. We assembled the machine the bars being heavily Japaned 
but she every time we had three barrels or 600 lights on and I 

found this was due to the fact that the Japan was put on unequally. We 
then took the bars out made them samller and would them as I have stated 
with four thickness of parchment paper. I found that parchment paper is 
the only kind of paper that offers great resistance to the static spark. 
You know that all papers are nothing more than a combination of fibers, 
that the spark goes right through the air spaces between the fibres and the 
paper offers no resistence at all, in fact it travels through the air, 

but if the air space is filled up with any glutinous substance so that it 
must pass through matter then it offers high resistance. Now in parchment 
paper the fibres are all agglutenous the air spaces are (clogged?), hence 
the spark must pass through solid matter hence the great utility of parch- 
ment paper for this purpose. These four layers as the insulation you have 
on the machine and you are quite safe flor 600 lights providing you have no 
eross in the chandeliers. Perhaps you can get along with een four or 
five hundred full lights. It would be better to get along with a smaller 
mumber until the test for economy takes place, then you canpput on 700 
lights. You will notice that we have bored the field out over 17/8 of an 
an inch so there is not the slightest danger about the band touching. 

We were compelled to bore out the field so that we could get sufficient 
air through the to cool the machine. With the present velocity of the 



“o Charles Batchelor Sept. 8, 1881 

blowere the machine will not over heat itself with 750 lights on. We were 
compelled to pass the air through one end so that it will 60 out at the 
other end as we did not dare to arrange it otherwisw. Hence the end of 
the armature where the air goes in after running many hours would be 
perfectly cold while the end nearest the commutator would be found 
pretty hot especially the tits. But there is no danger enen if the tits 
get so hot that you cannot scarcely hold your hand over. Of course the 
end nearest the commutator is at the disadvantage of having hot air thrown 
against it to cool it, 

You will have to be very careful about that"cross belt", It was the 
and you will have to inspect it well. * do not 

know whether you will need to run this machine every night or only certain 
nights in the week. If every night then after closing and the lights are 
off I should run the machine about half speed with the current altogether 
off so as to reduce the temperature of the aramature. Otherwise it will 
not not be very cool when you start the next night. However do not sup~ 
pose this matters very much as the speed of the blower is such that the 
heat never can rise to a dangerous point, without more than 700 lights 
are put on. Ido not know whether Dean written regording what kind of 
oil he uses, but my impression is the the best tand oil is the thing to 
use. I think I have heard him say so. I shauld only run two or three 
hundred lights at first until you have got your bearings nicely soaking 
You will notice that the has been changed. It pounded so that 
Dean put on a regular connecting rod. + want to tell you that just before 
we were ready to ship this machine the shaft broke off at a point where 
the disc on the engine connects with it. It appears Armington & Sims 
made this shaft of green metal. It was a very lucky accident ch ip might 
have had it occur in Paris. The idea of using a green metal shaft on a 
high speed engine with such a terrible thrust seems <<: - to me. 
In twenty five hours with a big gang of men Dean had a new steel shaft in 
with the machine running. The dynamo then worked so necely and satisfac- 
torily that I told Dean that I would not be satisfied if he did not get 
all the thump out of the engine and I told him to overhaul the engine throu- 
ghly. In this investigation he found that the disc on the engine with which 
the ; rod is connected was cracked{/ He then had to turn off the 
wheel and shrick an iron band on. After this was done the engine started 
and actually the iron band broke it being made of poor iron. He then made 
another band of the best moor iron and that is what you have on it now. 
You will notice that we have lagged the governor pulley so as to get the 
the proper speed to the blower. 

. Now about the electro motive force. There has been some 
very bad miscalculations in connection with this-machine all the way through. 
I had the cheek(!) to connect up the field magnets so as to put more foot 
pounds on it and the result was that with even some exterior resistance, 
two ohms I think, and with a speed of only 320 revolutions we got about 
100 or 110 volts which is more than we needed. Your lamps are 103 volts, 
the loss in your conductors will probably be not more than four volts hence 
107 volts is all you require, About 3 horse power is used on the field 


‘o Charles Batchelor Sept. 8, 1881 

magnets; the way it was connected when you were here it had but 1/8 of 
a horse power, 

Be careful that no water or oil gets round the blower as it might 
work into it and throw on to the armature, 

The English machine which will be shipped on the 17th of this month 
has 10 Z bars instead of 146 as in your machine and it has one field mag- 
net longer. It is to be insulated with twelve layers of Japanned parch- 
ment paper and the air will be injected in the centre a separation being 
made between the field magnet; it will give 1000 lights. 

I forgot to say that the lamps you have are 140 ohms instead of 
125 ohms resistance. This was Dr. Nichol's mistake. After making about 
30,000 of these lamps every body supposing them to be 125 ohms I got to 
figuring one night and found that if a lamp requires 103 volts with an 
economy of ten per horse power it would have to have more resistance than 
125 ohms or else there must be too many foot pounds on it for a ten per 
horse power economy. I spoke to Upton about it and upon investigation he 
traced it to Dr. Nichols. The Dr. has left us and is now fitting a Profes- 
sor's chair in some provincial college, teaching the young idea how to 

Tell to look out for water in his cylinder and always 
open the drain cocks and get dry steam and heat the cylinder up very slowly 
when first starting; otherwise he will get in trouble like we did here. 

Upon receipt of Bailey's telegram about making lamps in France 
I had Hughes ship you his Barton(?)engine and archimediar pump burner 
and blower which he had rigged up for fruit experiments. These I believe 
have gone forward and I have also instructed Upton to send you fifty 
thousand fibres. He could spare you some cutting moulds but 
I dare not send them as both the drawings machine and cutting moulds are 
patented in France. However with the aid of what we have sent you, you 
can make a very nice little start and I should get a room somewhere in 
the suburbs 25 ft by 30 ft or 40 ft which will be quite sufficient for 
the time being and start the thing as economically as possible, I suppose 
you ought to be able to get such a room as you require for $15, or $20. a 

You will have to go to some glass blowing place and get your globes 
pot blowers and your tubes drawn from the same pot. Your platina you will 
of course get at Johnson, Mathey and Co. of Hatton Gardens, London. You 
should claim to get it at the same rate at which they supply tit to the 

‘Lamp Co. (we have special rates with them) stating that you require it for 

the Lamp Co.'s use in France, 

If you have trouble about getting nickel we can send you sheet n 
nickel from here, We use plumbago covers in carbonizing that is to say 
the large cover which goes over the nickel forms is made of plumbago. 


: Be 
To Charles Batchelor Sept. 8, 1881 

Upton finds that about 2% of his lamps after being put away for 
two or three months loose their vacuum and finds it due to the fact that 
the sealing is not long enough. He has therefore added 1/8 of an inch 
to the length of this platinum so that he squeezes 1/8 of an inch more 
glass on it and he also brings the glass in the inside part up to a more 
"pastey" condition that is to say he gets it very much hotter or better 
fased before he squeezes it onto the wires 

You will probably have a very healthy time in getting cutting mould 
made in France. I should only get a half lamp cutting mould made at first, 

I will write you further if I should have omitted anything. 
Please continue to keep me well posted, 

Yours very sincerely

Mr. Gzorce Connmye, a New York telegrapher, having long realized the irksomoness of the 
keys in general use, and their tendency, by the severe tension of the nerves, to cause paralysis, 
claims that his new principle, periphery-contact, obviates theso serious evils; the key being abso- 
lutely free from “sticking,” or adherence of points, without jar, and giving a more rapid and 
delicate transmission thanany other. Thedeviceconsistsin tho placing of two wheels ordiscs swing- 
ing one upon tho other, atright angles; ono disc inside the arch of the lever and the other crosswise in 
. the insulated standard. Theelectrical contact is attained on thorimsor tires of these platina discs, in- 
stead of by tho two wire points in general uso for telegraph keys. These said discs are capable of 
a thousand surfaces by adjustment. The wheels are firmly held in place by small sct screws work- : 
ing on tho axlesofthesame. - a : 


FIRST.—The least possible contact surface—n mere geometrical point—which producss © 
Perfect electrical connection: The two discs being placed at right angles to each other, tho 
connection between the two is only a needlo point of surface. At the same time the signals aro 
given with great precision and delicacy of stroke. We would here say that the needle point of 
surface has now been decided by many experts to be the scientific explanation for its properties 
288 non-sticking key. Tho infinitessimal surfaco of tho peripherio contact at right angles asa con- 
veyer of electricity, has not hitherto been discerned or adopted till discovered by the inventor of 
this key, 

SECOND.—Oircular surface of the rim: Thus preventing dust from accumulating easily at 
tho point of contact and breaking circuit. : ‘ 

. THIRD.—Adjustability of the electrodes: For, if through any unforseen accident connec- 
tion should be arrested, both wheels, haviug a thousand possible points of contact, can be 
changed in an instant by turning each slightly on its axis to anow and bright surface 

FOURTH.—No lateral motion: The electrodes connect firmly and perfectly, so that the 
trunnion can bo screwed tight without affecting the correct working of tho key. 

FIFTH,—Olose contact: For the same reason the contact can be so regulated, if desired, 
that no lost vertical-motion need be perceptible, thus giving a soft, velvet stroke, . 

SIXTH.—No jar: The system of wheels and axles forms an elastic bed, which, taken in 
connection with the dot-contact and close adjustment, makes it possible to work the key all day 
without any lost motion to fatigue tho hand or try the nerves, 

This key has had unusual tests and has come out of ‘tho trial victorious, It is at 

‘present being worked on the heaviest wires with thorough satisfaction. ‘Wo have received the 
highest testimonials from the profession as to its good qualities, viz., non-sticking, elastic stroke, 
lack of jar, and beauty of construction. 

Ono of the finest operators in the service says: ‘* Too much praise cannot be given to the 
Cumming key. I endorse all that anyone can say in tts favor.” . Another: ‘‘ It is only a question 
of time before its adoption becomes universal,” Another, an inventor and expert, Bays: “ Icon- 
sider the Cumming key far superior to all others, it does not stick,” 

Every operator who has handled the Cumming key pronounces it ‘a treasure” and capable of 
giving tho fastest transmission under tho strongest battery, and any company who has had to pay 
for the many blunders caused by sticking keys can but echo that refrain—a treasuro— if they 
adopt it, Sample key sent post-paid on receipt of price,

In a previous article we indicated in what case this sys- 

tem of Electric Lighting was specially applicable, and we saw that 
Heneerorih, thanks to important improvements recently introduced, 
it could be employed for the interior of houses, where light of 
feeble intensity is used; we have seen that several castles in 
pagina were lighted in this way, and that a certain number of 
houses in the city of New York had subscribed for the. light fur- 
nished by the Edison Electric Light Company. Since the success~ 
ful introduction of these lamps a great number of systems of the 
same kind have been brought out :by different inventors, and without 
speaking of such well known ones as those of Edison, Swan, Maxim, 
Lane Fox, Sawyer, we know of about fifteen inventions, bearing 
more or less upon the subject. It chereraes seems to us an oppor- 
tune moment to enter into circumstantial details about this method 
of lighting which up to this moment has not excited any great inter- 
est in Europe for various reasons which we have ananenated in dif- 
ferent articles published in this journal at the commencement of 
the year 1880, of which the principal one was the relative con- 

siderable expenditure of motive force to produce a light of given 

intensity, It should be borne in mind that the luminous power of 

an incandescent body. increases in a much greater ratio than the 

calorific intensity; therefore, by the very fact that incandescent 
‘lamps permit a greater division of the electric light, a loss is 
caused by the weakening of the rafliating power resulting from the 
same. Nevertheless the satisfactory results recently obtained force 
us to pass these aystomaot aleetete lighting in series, and we 

will begin naturally enough with that of Mr Edison, which has made 
the most noise in the world and which has attracted attention to 

this manner of lighting by electricity. 


The incandescent system was first represented by lamps 
made from an incandescent platinum wire, and the interesting ex- 
periments made in 1879 by M de Changy should be recollected; but 
the practical workings of this system were not satisfattory, prin- 
cipally because of the disagregation and partial fusion of the 
wires, and in spite of the numerous improvements brought to bear 
on this system by Mn Edison who, by one of the most ingenious of 
processes had rendered them more infusible andvharder, still they 
had to be absolutely rejected at least for ordinary lamps. Then 
it was gnedeuted to employ carbon which if not allowed to burn is 
infusible in the highest heat developed in the lamps, and.differ- 
ent arrangements Of apparatus were put together at various times by 
King Lodyguine, Bouliguine, Swan, Sawyer, etce, some avoiding 
combustion by enclosing the lamps in recepticles where a& vacuum 
had been obtained, others by filling these recepticles with gases 

unfit for combustion, as nytrogen or oxide of. carbon, or simply by 

dpc sean xiag's mons 2 A ose Biss ted 

leaving the air shut up in the recepticle to be vitiated by an 
incipiant combustion. 

All these attempts had but partially succeeded, to say 
nothing more when in 1879 the new incandescent carbon lamp of Nr 
Edison was announced, ‘and re savants, and myself iA particular, 
sbabese he exactness: of the ellegatedns which came to us from 
America. The carbonized paper horse shoe appeared incapable of 
resisting mechanical shocks, and of supporting ineandescense for 
any lenght of time, At this epoch Mr. Swan himself said that up 
to that time, he had not been able to obtain any very satisfactory 
results by an analagous disposition of the incandescent organ. 

Mr. Edison however was not abashed, and in spite of the 
lively opposition made to his lamps, in spite of the bitter polemic 
of which he was the object, he did not cease to perfect it for prac- 
tical purposes, and has at last produced lamps, wheih we have seen 
at the Exposition and which can be admired by all the world for 
their perfect steadiness. These lamps to the number of 160, 
light the two salens reserved for the discoveries of the ingenious 
american inventor, and we shall see still more important results 
upon the installation of the meee machine, whi ch is expected from 

As at present made, these lamps are sufficiently solid 
and can last a long time. The originally fragile carbon has be- 
come extremely elastic and hard, and of such attenuation that it 
ean be well compared in re a horse hair. By a cleverly com- 

bined system of fastening the platinum, conducting wires are not 

exposed to be cut, and they are so sealed in the glass receiver 

that their change of volumn under the action of heat does not en- 
danger the perfection of the vacuum, By the wee the carbons are 
treated when the vacuum is made in the globe, the bubbles of ee 
enclosed in their pores and which in escaping digagregate the sur- 
face, are evacuated before closing the lamp, and at the same time 
the filament of carbon acquires a peculiar density and hardness as 
was the case with the platinum wires. To obtain this result the 
carbonized filament must be brought into inecandescense while the 
vacuum is being made. The very nature of the substance of vega~ 
table origin, employed in its fabrication has been modi fied. 
Fibres of bamboo are now used instead of the paper originally em- 
ployed. These are carbonized by a certain process and the suc- 
cessive transformation of these fibres into carbon filaments may 
be followed in several collections to be seen at Mr Edison’s expo- 
sition and which will gratify the curious, and are worthy of 
study. According to Mr Batchelor and Mr 0. A.MOses, co-laborers 
of Mr. Edison and who represent him at the exposition, the resistance 
of these filaments is 125 ohm when brought up to an incandescense 
corresponding to 16 candles, but it can vary according to the lu- 
minous power desired of the lamps, for it can be distributed be~ 
tween two lamps whose filaments are correspondingly more or lags 
long. Their extremities which ate enlarged are pressed in a kind 
of pincer which terminates the platinum conductors and which are 
soldered by an electrolytically deposited copper. Vig. 1. repre- 
sents the actual arrangement of these Lamps. Their duration from 
what I have been assured is long Sasuete however they must wear 

out. Although most of them, have served for 1200 hours, the 

question may be asked whether a lamp capable of deterioration may 
be considered a practical thing, but if it is considered that this 
lamp.: can be furnished for 30 cents, that the adjustment on its sup- 
port cannot be any simpler than it is, which is evident on dnepade 
tion, it is easily seen there is no more trouble to replace one, 
than to renew a broken lamp shade. 

What sopakerutes Mr. Edison’s system is not alone his 
lamps, it is the totality of the arrangements referring to them 
and which have attained such a degree of simplicity that hence- 
forth nothing ere to be desired in practice. Generating mach- 
ines, distribution of circuits, installation, indicating and regu- 
lating apparatus, matres for measuring the amount .of current em- 
ployed, are all combined for immediate application and as we have 
said, this application is about being made in a part of the city 
of New York, when a great number of houses are to be lit by this 
sustes by means of a subterranean distribution from a central sta- 
tion, from whi ch also motive power will be distributed to the 

This central station will be provided with twelve steam 
engines of 150 horse power each, actuating dynamo electric mach- 
ines, each of which will be capable to supply it is said, 2, 400 
lamps of 8 candle power. The current furnished to these lamps, 
comes through a branch taken before each house from the large sized 
conductors laid in the:istreets. These deviations bring the poles of 
the generator into each house, where the lamp wires can be brought 

in connection with them, thus rendering each house independent of 

ELE Slr LOS ea Pelee 

any other, both for a supply of light and motive power, 

When it is considered that the system of distribution 
adopted by Mr Fdison, the total resistance of the exterior circuit 
is extremely reduced and that with 2400 on, it is only ooo, say 
about 3f¢0 of an ohm, it can be seen, a very feeble resistance 
should be given to the generating machine; so that its first arrange- 
ment has been modified, To begin with the field Magnets. were ar- 
ranged on a derivation taken from the: cgumid batons, putting it into 
the induced circuit as in wheatstones’. & Sieman’s system, “then 
the armature was arranged on Sieman’s principal so that the wire 
consisted of bars of copper, These bars lie close to each other 
around the cylinder which forme the armature, and they generate the 

current. Their extremeties correspond to dises of copper (at right 

_ angles to them) laid one against the other at the ends of the cylin- 

der and insulated from each other, Fach bar is fastened to its 
corresponding discs in such a way as to form a single cireuit enie- 
loping the cylinder tlongitudinally, and which is made perfect 
through the coupled bars two and two.with the commutator blocks 
(made after the gramme’ s pattern. ) Fig. 2 & 3 gives an idea of 
this new arrangement. The center of the cylinder itself is oceu- 
pied outside of the rotating axle by a cylinder of wood which in 
its turn is surrounded by a thick tube made of a series of very 
thin dises of iron, separated from each other by tissue Paper, 
This arrangement facilitates the rapid changes of polarity in the 
plates, This tube is terminated at its two extremities by two 

thick clamping discs which are made to compress the others later- 

‘ally and the copper discs of the working coil occupy the two com- 

partments at the extremities of the cylinder as seen in Fig. 2 

Under such conditions as these, the resistance of the generator is 
’ small and permits of great sub-division of the current in multiple 
ates: nor is there ‘any insulation to be burned and it is even pos- 
sible in case of the deterioration of the bars to renew them easily 
for they are simply screwed against the copper discs corresponding 
‘to them. In the new disposition adopted by Mr Edison, the field 
magriats lie horizontal instead of being placed in the vertical, 

Fig. 4. represents the whold nia alate as now no tuatiy. 
working in the Palais de 1’Industrie, 

We have described the generating machine before complet- 
ing the description of the system of distribution of. the current 
because we ought to speak of the system of control used in making 
the current uniform when its Laauuity has been modified by a vari-~ 
ation in its distribution, that is to says: teGiontne after a vari- 
ation resulting from the unexpected suppression of & certain number 
of lamps in a part of the system, The negessities of this system 
are easily understood, if we consider that this suppression can 
lead to g greater or less naueege in the intensity of the eurrents 
feeding the remining lamps. 

In France several systems have been devised to obtain 
an automatic regulation, but in America it seems, it is preferred 
to effect this by the intermediation of an appropriate controling 

In this system in whose general. aprangement we see in 

vig. 5 the current which feeds the lamps. furnishes a deviation 

at the machine bb which enters an electric dynamometer, after hav- 
.. ing gone through a resistance of 85N0 ohns. The electro motive foree 
should be about 110 volts and a difference of onevyolt should 

correspond on the scale of the indicating apparatus, to three divi- 

sions; consequently for each observed increase or intensity a resis- 

tance capable of compensating for it should be introduced into the 
circuit. Mr. Edison has established a circular commutator 8 with 
bobbins of differant resistance which permits of an increase of 
resistance, not in. the lamp circuit, which would lead to a loss of 
work, but in the cireuit of field Magnets, which weakens thair ac- 
tion on the working coil, From the central station also the con-~ 
dition of the current affecting the lamps can be controlled by 
means of a testing photometer which enables us to see how much the 
intensity of the current must be diminished or increased to corres- 
pond to a given luminous intensity, For this purpose the photo- 
meter is mounted on a littJe Yailroad placed in a dark chamber; 
-under and in front of it is placed & scale abi trarily divided ae 
as to indicate immediately the candle power furnished by the cur- 
rent in its normal condition, he left side of Fig. 5 indicates 
the manner 9f arrangement of the testing bench with the explani~ 
tory table at the bottom of the figure, Fig. 6 shows it in pros- 
pective, The manner in which derivations are taken on the princi- 
pal conductors merits special mention, The conductors are compos- 
ed of two rods of copper of hemi-cylindrical form, flat on one side 
and round on the other, which are enveloped in cylinders of tngitad 

ing material, contained in small wrought iron pipes) which are 


buried under the streets, To take a derivation the cable is laid 
bare at the spot where the branch circuit is to be established, 
The two conducting rods (coming from the main conductors) are cut 
and bent outwards and introduced into a clamp where they are sol- 
dered to the house wires as shown in Fig. 7% but in order that no 
harm can be done by too strong currents one of these communications | 
is made by intercalating a lead wire in the branch circuit shown 
at the bottom of the figure and which by its fusion interrupts the 
circuit, This is what is called in America ateut off;’ and in 
this way it prevents deterioration, The box is then hermetically 
closed and covered with an insulating coating, In the figure the 
orguck wireg are shown double ‘ut it is evident that they could be 

We said that all arrangements had been made to make the 
system a pepfectly practical one, and of that we will soon be able 
to judge, Let us examine first how the lamp supports and the lamps 
themselves are disposed, As has been seen they are formed of 
glass globes of ovoid form, cemented into copper sleeves by means 
of plaster and screwed into cylindrical cavities, terminating the 
aupports, ‘isa: are a kind of arm which can be adapted to brack-— 
ets or chandeliers or be arranged around the walls, In the last 
ease, the arm as is shown in Fig. 8 carry two articulations A, &B, 
and commutations are made by two plates of the hinges which are 
insulated, and in whose circular part two springs press, seen in 
Fig. 9 &10 Connections of the conductors with the lamp as we 
have indicated above are made by a lead wire (cut off) which may 

melt and interrupt the circuit in case a too great quantity of cur-~ 

want ahantaA a an a « 


rent should endanger the lamp. 

In these brackets, as in the three branch chandeliers, 
represented in Fig.11. keys have been introduced which allow the 
extinction of the lamps separately or together wtthout causing any 
_spark atf;,the point ae eupeure or any danger of fire. The move- 
ment of the key a as shown in figure 9 breaks the contact by means 
of a donload atopper which terminates the serew of the key, and 
which when separated from the two plates through which the éurpent 
passes when the stopper is in contact with them, breaks the cir- 
cuit at two points and on a surface of sufficient extent to greatly 
diminish the spark at the point of. rupture, 

The lighting of the two salens of Mr Edi son at the Expo- 
sition is done by 16 small chandeliers like the above, two grand 
erystal chandeliers, and 80 brackets. Fig. 12 represents one of 

these chandeliers, 

The effect is very beautiful, the steadiness being so 
complete as could be desired, and if as I have been assured the 
Bites of this kind of illumination is lower, light for light, than 
gas, it may be ebunkdcrea that the problem is on the eve of solution 
for Edison’s system of electric lighting ti placed in the same 
condition as that of gas. He avoids the presence of machines in 
separate houses which always are in the way, and which by their veyy 
nature enue care and management not to be obtained from ordinary 

As a compliment to his system, Mr Edison has constructed 

portable chandeliers represented in Fig, 13. and a current regula- 

tor shown in Figures 14 § 15 which permits of reducing the light in 

any desired proportion, It is a carbon rheostat composed of car~ 
bon pencils of different sections which as the current passes 
through one or the other allows any desired intensity, The appa-~ 
ratus is enveloped in a cylindrical cover pierced with holes to 
allow of the escape of heat and surmounted by a lamp which indicate 
to the eye the desired degree of luminacy, It is worked by a 
disc shown Sepé@rated in the lower part of Fig. 14, and which can be 
turned so as to bring a contact spring on any one of: the supports 
of the carbon whose position is indicated by an index and divisions 
piseed on the base of the cylinder. 

But what is most- interesting of all in these accessories 
of Mr. Edison’s system, is the meter which determines the amount 
of electricity consumed by the. lamps, There are two kinds, one 
automatic like a gas meter, the other Bequires weighing. They 
are however both founded on the same principle that is to say, in 
the estimation of work by the weight of copper deposite produced 
by the current used. ~ We will describe these two interesting 
pieces of apparatus hereafter, and give drawings of them; today we 
must be content with only mentioning the principle involved. 

Imagine a balance having at the extremities of the beam 
two cylindrically rolled plates of copper forming two electrodes, 
Let us admit that éneee os systems of electrodes, which plunge 
into two vessels Zilled with a solution of sulphate of copper and 
furnished with tiked electrodes, are traversed in an inverse direc- 
éfon by the current dupreved; and which can cause the balance to 

Operate under a given weight of copper deposited from the solution, 



It is easily seen that the movement brought about by these condi- 
tions can set in motion a current reverser which can change the 
conditions of the deposite in such a way, that the electrode gover 
ed With copper is transformed into a soluble electrode, white the 
one which was originally in that condition becomes the reducing 
electrode, From this time on, an oscillating motion of the beam 
of the balance is established add mors or less frequently repeated 
according to the ecenaley of the formation of deposite, that is to 
say, according to the intensity of the current.-~-As the same move- 
ment can bring about the passage of a lenised current (taken from 
the total current) across a special’ electro magnet, which commands 
the movement of a counter, it is easily seen, (after the determi- 
nation of the number of Amperes corresponding to the weight of the 
deposite, Which produces the oscillation of the balance) what is 
the quantity of electricity tongumed. 

The eeniteneuon of this idea has necessitated some elec- 
trp magnetic arrangements which we will describe in detail when we 
get the drawings of the apparatus. 

The other system is more simple, consisting of two vol- 
tometers of supphatie of copper whose electrodes can be easily taken 
out and eaieioa: as the work done can be calculated from the weight 
of copper deposited. One of these voltameters is open to the sub- 
seriber, the other is kept closed by the controler, Resistance 
pobbine introduced into the eevetiak corresponding to these resist- 
ances, permits of the employment of grekter or less periods of 

A small incandescent lamp placed beneath the apparatus and which 

Pd Coe gil Peeine en se eee eT 


can be thrown into circuit, by a simple metallic thermometre pre~ 
vents any danger of freezing in. extremely cold weather, 

There is another application at Wr. Edison’ s light which 
can be seen at his Exposition ina model intended for lighting gal- 
eries on mines, In this arrangement represented in ties 16. the 
lamp is introduced in a glass recepticle filled with water and 
held in suspension, Communication. of the apparatus with the cir- 
cuit is arranged in such Suey that the points of contact are coy- 
ened by water which avoids any danger of explosion in mines infest- 
ed with fire~damp, | 

To give an idea of the apbiieation of Mr Edison’s sys- 
tems, we have represented in the large engraving accompanying this 
article Fig, 17. the interior of a parlor lighted by the small 
chandeliers preViously described. As is seen the electric light 
is projected downward, the best arrangement for reading and writing, 
This method to be -preferred by Mr Edison, but as can be seen above 
described that all ‘styles of illumination can be produced with this 
kind of light, analogous to that:obtained with candles or gas jets: 
it is simply a matter of taste. 

Mr. Edison’s lamps are not alona employed in the two sa- 
lens reserved for him, they are to be found in various places 
throughout the great nave, notably at the exhibitseciof Messrs 
Heilman Ducommun et Stienben lor which we gave a drawing in a 
previous articid “at the exhibit of Messrs Sautter and Lemonnier. 

At these two places the currents are furnished by two Gramme mach- 

ines type A. and each one lights abaut 40 lamps. Now that Mr 

Bdison’s great machine has arrived at the Exposition it will be 
possible to obtain with the incandescent system, illuminations of 
greater magnitude, The landing of the great staircase will be 

lit in this way, It is proposed to accomplish this by means of a 
erystal chandelier of 144 lamps and of others furnished with 25 
lamps each, to be hung from the different panels, and of girandoles 
standing on the 16 pilasters of the staircase. This will produce 
an enchanting effect and a brilliant illumination, I am not quite 
sure that this mixture of arc and incandescent lights is a tapes 
thought. It is evident that the latter destroy the effect of the 
former and might lead one to believe that the luminous intensity 
of the incandescent lamp is less than it really is, Again, the 
difference in the color of the light is so contrasted that many 
persons who reproach the electric for its gastly sees find it too 
red in incandescent lamps, It is evidently an effect of contrast 
for the light of incandescent lamps is:whiter than that of gas jets 
which Nec ere these same people find vane agreeable, If re- 

quired, incandescent lamps can give a dazzling white just as well 

as the others, it is only necessary to employ a ipponnes electrical 
intensity, then they lose their peculiar qualities, that of giving 
a soft light which docs not fatigue the eye and of an easier and 
more complete subdivision, 

It is certainly very difficult to satisfy everybody and 
that many persons hardly know what they do want, above all when the 

effects of contrast momentarily impair the power of judging correct- 

ly, On the other hand there are certain fault-finding spirits: who 

are never satisfied with anything, witness, the author of that in- 
comprehensible article that recently appeared in a certain journal 
who pretneded that '. only discordant sounds and puppet show voices 
sould be heard in the telephones from the opera, The author in 
question who could perpetrate such an enormity must have had his 
ear as sick as his humor, The crowd passing every evening before 
the telephone rooms at the Exposition is the best proff ofthe in- 
anity of such judgements and by this can once move be seen the | 
value of the scientific lucubrations of certain political journals, 

The same thing happens wiht the electric light and quite 
a number of persons who without previous examination and without 
being of the same opinion two days eanseeutively come to us and 
disparage electric lighting. It is certain that new inventions 
have great difficulty in coming to light succeeding, above 
all when they are opposed by rival interests, but when they are 
eauiay good they triumph in time ever all obstacles. 

We would like to give some information about Mn Edison’s 
pew Machines but as they are not yet put up we reserve the des— 
cription for another time, We will &nly say that the steam éngine 

was constructed especially for this application, that it makes no 

noise, and that the dynamo electric machine forms one of its inte- 

gral parts, The field magnets Of this latter mentioned, in place 

of being vertical as in the model represented in Fig, 4 is hori- 
zontal and the dimensions of the machine itself are much larger. 

The Sbeam, engine which works the machine is of peculiar 

construction and the speed of rotation which is communicated to the 

working coil is 350 turns a minute. This is not a very great 

speed, but the armature is very heavy weighing as we are told, over 
three tons and a half. The ciaauetie field in which it turns is 
formed of three powerful electro magnets united so as to form but 
one at their extremities. In the salen of Mr Edison are a collec- 
tidn of photographs among which may be seen some of the manufac~ 
turies where the enormous amount, of material required in these in- 
stallations is constructed. As we have been assured one of these 
turns out 2000 lamps a day, giving occupation to 150 persons. 

In accompanying drawings and collections can be seen 
methods of glass blowing, the carbonizing of the filaments intend- 
ed for incandescense, the vacuum pumps and the mounting and packing 
of the lamps. The pumps referred to are set in motion by dynamo 
electric machines, 

From all this we see Mr. Edison’s system today is com- 
Pleted, perfectly studied out in all its parts, and that nothing 

more remains to be done but to introduce it on a great scale.
